Around 18% of Americans consider themselves to be supporters of the Tea Party. Something like four in ten voters said they supported the TP movement in 2010 midterm exit polls.

But did they understand the issues? That drives change. Cheerleading does not.

If 10% of Americans truly understood the implications of our debt based, fractional reserve monetary system and banking industry there would be a revolution tomorrow. (Parapharsed somewhat from some famous old dead guy)


Instead, "I'll get to it right after I get caught up on Jersey Shore"

Given the issues that seemed to drive support for the Tea Party, I'd say that they most definitely did not understand them. They didn't even understand that those weren't real issues.

Revolutions need leaders, and leaders need ideas that normal people can relate to. I don't see much of that out there right now.
